Interested in what the future will hold? Join us as LinkedIn Co-Founder and Partner at Greylock Reid Hoffman hosts a fireside chat with MIT Sloan School of Management’s faculty members Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee. Erik and Andrew are co-authors of the 2014 NYTimes best-selling book, The Second Machine Age, and their latest book, Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing Our Digital Future.
Reid, Erik, and Andrew will discuss the fascinating times that we are living in today - a time where a machine can play the strategy game Go better than any human; upstarts like Apple and Google are destroying industry stalwarts such as Nokia; and ideas sourced from the crowd are infinitely more innovative than corporate research labs.
Andrew and Erik know what it takes to master this digital-powered shift, and Reid will have a chance to discuss with them how we need to rethink the integration of minds and machines, of products and platforms, and of the core and the crowd.

Join us for a fascinating fireside chat with Stacy Brown-Philpot, CEO of TaskRabbit, and Ty Heath, the President of our Black Inclusion Group (BIG). They will discuss the future of work, the sharing/gig economy, how TaskRabbit is fueling it, and what is being done in Silicon Valley to invest in diversity.
Fun fact: Did you know that Stacy grew up where LinkedIn opened our most recent office?!? We’re excited to bond over Detroit and hear how growing up there has shaped her view on the world.
